Looking to throw in a cheap, but relatively fast and reliable SSD for a Linux drive in my current setup. I was looking at the Samsung 830 64GB, but I don't actually need that much space. Any recommendations?

That is an excellent drive, and you would likely be very pleased with it. I had a lot of issues using corsair drives, but zero problems since I switched to the samsung line.

Thanks guys, I also have a Samsung 830 128GB as my Win7 drive. :)  I'll hold out a bit longer in the hopes that it drops below $60 (or I catch it on-sale),

IMHO, 64GB is too small for a boot drive.
